Actors come to life in Christie’s ‘Death’
By Kristi Blackman
Of The Print
Agatha Christie’s play
“Appointment With Death”
presented by the Theater Dept,
at the College was one of those
“whodunnit” mysteries that
makes the audience try to out-
think the murderer (s).
Veteran actor Neil Hass
(Dr. Gerard) brought a realism
to his character. The strength
of his performance was an
asset to the stage. He makes
the art of acting look so easy, a
very talented man indeed.
Patrick Sterling who por­
trayed Raymond Boynton, a
devoted and dependent
‘mama’s boy’ also did well.
Every line and action that came
from this man made me think
that acting is second nature to
this guy. Sterling has an ap­
titude for this art and if he is to
pursue his talent further, look
out Broadway.

It was simply a delight to
listen to ‘Lady Westholme’
(Eileen Furgason) and her
snobby, influential British ac­
cent that left no contest with
the real mccoy. Her character
played well against Rod
Ragsdale (Aiderman Higgs),
another Englishman who’s
cockney accent and character
wasn’t afraid to give the fair
lady a bad time with witty
reparte. Ragsdale’s character
was so believable you can only
wonder if the beer he’s drinking
in one gulp is as warm as only a
true Englishman would drink.
Mrs. Boynton, played by
Carol Kyle, was the center of
attention, and the plot as well.
Kyle is a newcomer to the
theatrical department and to
acting. In the beginning of the
play, her character was very
forceful but she seemed to be a
bit nervous, caused perhaps by
jitters. Her jitters wore off soon

after the second act began, and
her character became all the
more forceful and domineer­
ing.
Another veteran of
theater, Victor Toman had the
“Dragoman” down to a “T!”
Toman’s ambitious perfor­
mance was so creative it was
exciting to watch. His en­
thusiasm as the “Dragoman”
will be one that will be
remembered by the audience.
He livened up a character that
could have been very dull.
Newcomer 12-year-old
John Schnell, who played the
obedient “Arab Boy” was very
good for his first production
performance. I hope the ex­
perience he has had working
with some of the best actors the
College theater has produced
will only encourage him to fur­
ther explore the many roles
that lie ahead.
Lynn Meyers who por­
trayed Dr. Sarah King was the
right one for the role, she
treated the character with a
strong personality anda
feminine touch.
Nadine Boynton, played
by Maureen Rust, could have
had a little more facial expres­
sions, at times the lines looked
as though the words were just
flowing from her mouth and
there was no meaning behind
them.
Kristin Black (Ginevra
Boynton) first looked to me as
though she resembled actress
Tatum O’Neil and her facial ex­
pressions and deliveries of her
lines (even though they were
very much her own) resembled
that of the professional. Black
portrayed a nervous girl who
was suffering from severe men­
tal anguish, she was excellent,
and will be someone to watch
for.
stage performance shows a
great deal of acting ability.
Even for a small part I
think The Hotel Clerk, F. T.
Morris, was very good. You
could see the sickly sweet
niceness that the desk clerks in
big hotels have, and how peo­
ple who work with the public
must always satisfy the
customer.
The Costumes for this pro­
duction were so appropriate,
and the baggy high watered
field pants worn by Dianna
Hardy (Miss Pryce) fit the per­
sonality of the character as well
as for the rest of the cast. A
stroke of genius by Costume
designer Stephanie Feldman.
Also, the set is worth going and
seeing.
Jefferson Cope, played by
Joe Schenck, wears the three
piece suit beautifully, and it
seems as though he played the
naive young gentleman with an
extreme amount of knowlege
towards his character. His
research for this part was well
done.
Russel McMillen (Lennox
Boynton) left an impression
that his character was very
wishy-washy. Maybe it was due
to his delivery of the lines, but
made for a non-outstanding
performance. ,
Pehaps you could say Etta
Leonard was a natural for her
part as the Italian Girl who
didn’t say very much. But her
As the British would say;
“Good Show!”
